Capitalists Anonymous Meeting

Are you in the early stages of a post capitalist hangover? Or do you intend to ride that globalised juggernaut until it hits the wall? Whatever your views we want to hear from you.

Capitalists Anonymous provides a supportive environment in which to share your stories of greed, excess consumption, shopping addiction and explore your fears or excitement about what’s next? Let’s replace want with need.

This is the original Twelve Step Manifesto as published by Capitalists Anonymous:

1. We admit we are powerless over the desire to consume—that our lives have become detached.
2. We believe that community can restore our sanity.
3. We have made the decision to take control of our lives and not be a slave to greed.
4. We must rid ourselves of status anxiety.
5. We admit to ourselves, and to others, the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. We embrace need over want.
7. We are humbled by the inequality of wealth on this planet.
8. We recognise all the damage and harm of a world built on capital rather than community, and are willing to make amends to all its citizens and to the planet.
9. By making amends to the planet and adopting nature’s rhythms we allow Gaia to revitalize herself.
10. We continue to take personal inventory and when we are wrong promptly admit it.
11. We seek, through simple living, to improve our conscious contact with nature, community and ourselves.
12. Having realized we have almost exhausted the planet’s resources we resolve to maintain and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Capitalists Anonymous was set up by What Next? Anonymous, for C.R.A.S.H. A Postcapitalist A to Z, to “actively imagine a post capitalist world!”
